Details:

The mission of the Gulf Coast Humane Society is to: � Offer refuge, medical care, and a home for homeless animals in Lee County, Florida. � Foster a public sentiment of humanity and gentleness toward animals, and protect them from cruelty, neglect, carelessness, and ignorance. � Promote responsible pet ownership through humane education � Enhance the quality of human life through animal companionship. For over 53 years we have maintained a non-profit shelter funded entirely by donations. Most of the animals in our shelter are owner surrenders. Of the animals put up for adoption, almost 100% find new homes either through the shelter adoption facilities or through our off-site adoption facilities at PetsMart.
